A rigorous program is the standard for our middle school curriculum. The four core classes in math, English, social studies, and science are taken every day all year for all students in grades six through eight. In addition, we offer many elective options for students to take and explore, which include choir, band, art, theater, technology and robotics, family and consumer science (FACS), physical education, health, and Spanish. We encourage students to take a variety of courses in a variety of areas to discover areas of interests and talents.
The faculty, staff, and administration at ROCORI Middle School are dedicated to creating an environment that enables students to experience a structured, caring, and positive learning atmosphere. It is our belief that such an environment promotes self-respect and an equal respect for others. Since our fundamental purpose is to provide for the education and development of all our students, it is our commitment to develop skills in our students that will enable them to reach their highest levels of achievement.
A variety of programming options are offered in athletics, activities, fine arts, academic competitions and clubs at ROCORI Middle School. These provide students an opportunity to further explore and develop the gifts and talents they have been given. All extra-curricular programs are designed to balance each Middle School student’s overall educational experience and provide a way for them to have greater involvement and connection with the school and community
We want to thank all the staff that are retiring. Combined the 7 people retiring have given 191 years of experience/service to ROCORI students, staff and community. Your service is appreciated!
